Our Ceylon pattern has been discontinued.
If you have previously downloaded Ceylon it is still available in your pattern library.

This vintage-inspired shirtdress features an inset waist, a slightly dropped and curved waistline, and curved neckline yoke. Gathers at the bust provide fullness, and the skirt is gathered at the front and generously flared. Sleeves are short and puffed, and it closes with 16 buttons down the center front.
